question to kimberly. a question that catherine herridge on fox news has been asking over and over is the f.b.i. going there? why haven't they arrived yet? is it because it's unsafe? what is the other reason if you are the administration you want the f.b.i. investigating this? >> kimberly: this is their dog and pony show. instead of handling this through the military division they will handle it as a law enforcement problem. send the f.b.i. there. that means if they get anybody they want to question and integait, they will go, here is a happy meal. we'll bring you back and try you here. the wrong way to approach this situation. >> dana: it has happened before. at fort hood. >> kimberly: it has happened before. we've seen the epeck fail by the administration and holder of department of injustice. they don't know how to manage this. they are lacking. they are not respected in the middle east. now seeing weakened position internationally. if you look in the the violence erupting in different spots if this was president bush in the past administration, calls for him to be thrown out of office. >> d

the stove pipes are down, intelligence is red teamed, the fbi now has a national security branch, staffed by 10,000 people. i mean how could it be that people were learning how to fly planes and not land. these were the kinds of things they would look out for. and as bob mueller said in open session to us, we've had 20 attempts at the last year and every one of them has been stopped. i think that's good news. so we have learned. we have a counterterrorism center that specializes now in threats to the homeland. we have a director of national intelligence to provide coordination over the 16 different intelligence agencies. no longer are they their own spheres, they're part of a network. there have been changes and we have learned hard lessons. >> how important is the killing yesterday in yemen of the second in command al qaeda's second in command, al shirry. >> that hasn't been confirmed to the best of my knowledge. i don't know whether he is dead or not. but if he is, it's certain lay positive thing. over half of the al qaeda leadership has been taken out. the problem is, that they're repl

do not appear to be learning from the past." now, you were at the fbi in 1998. what do you make of that? are we not learning the lesson from the past? >> frankly i think that's ridiculous. we've learned a lot from those lessons. but there's a much different situation here in libya than there was in kenya and tanzania in 1998. >> how so? >> you don't have a developed government for one thing. >> libyan government. >> the libyan government that doesn't have the robust law enforcement, intelligence, military forces to be able to -- just come into power. trying to deal with a few number of insurgents that are going to cause trouble no matter what. >> the people will ask, what can they do. because frankly it was the united states embassy we're talking about which supposedly is united states tear toirks at least the inside of it. >> right. but internationally, host country always provides the outer perimeter security. so if they failed to do that, then if there's enough people causing an attack it's going to be like the alamo. are going to be able to overwhelm an embassy or consulate.
the fbi has a team on the ground in libya to identify suspects, gather evidence and assess whether a prosecution is possible. as fox news was first to report the targeted killing of ambassador coordinated and may be linked to a group called lifg or the libyan fighting islamic group. it was banned by the former dictator muammar qaddafi because of its support for al qaeda. the head of the house intelligence committee is one of few members of congress fully briefed on the attacks and the investigation. >> even though we can't say for sure this was an al qaeda event yet it certainly fits the profile, it fits the signature, the precision, the way that they carried out this particular attack, certainly would make it likely that it is an al qaeda affiliated organization. >> reporter: this morning the libyan foreign ministry saying that they believe a group called ansar al sharia was involved. they support the extremist goal of imposing strict sharia law in that country. jenna: ongoinging investigation as we learn more about libya. what about cairo? what are we learning about the investiga
